Statement

 

 

 

 

I lived a big part of my life in a country that suffers the consequences of colonialism, political corruption, dictatorship, devastation of natural resources, exploitation of human labor and discrimination toward Native American cultures, with the subsequent displacement of original cultural identities. Therefore, art is for me a form of expression that has allowed me to get rid of these frustrations and has led me reveal them to the public. My subject is based on the influence of identities within socio-cultural disagreement, the constant social re-adaptations and the clash of cultures induced by what I called: Displacement of identity and new forms of socialization.

It is present in my work the role of the memory, history, emigration, ideology and personal experiences, which provides me the insights of my praxis. I use autoethnography as methodology of my research.

My recent work reflects on identities within socio-cultural situations of the Globalized world of nowadays. Touching topics of post-colonialism, social medias and digitalization, human labor and social injustices in colonial countries.

I use different kind of media -time base material- including sound, video, performance, sculptural objects and archives, combining them in various installations.

I explore and experiment with the means of movement, transition, displacement, change, impermanent and invisible. With emphasis on those details that provoke curiosity and a question mark while touching the boundaries between reality and fiction.
